The bulbine Lily is an attractive lily, widespread in the eastern states of Australia. It has a bulb-like tuber and fleshy grass-like leaves and a tall flower spike with several bright yellow flowers in the spring. It is easily grown from seed and once established self-seeds freely. I have a spreading colony of plants in my garden.
